5:37 am
continues to take orders from the utilities at the expense of the public. this vote happens tomorrow. >> is there an alternate plan in the works? >> reporter: yes. so the puc commissioner has his own proposal on how to restructure all the rates. and the sierra club is endorsing that plan. we are live at the customer service center for pg&e in cupertino. i'm kiet do, kpix 5. san francisco police are holding a person of interest after gunfire rang out on a busy pier with deadly results. it happened about 6:30 last night on pier 14 right near the ferry building towards the bay bridge. 31-year-old woman was walking with her family when she was shot once in the upper torso. woman believed to be originally from pleasanton later died at san francisco general hospital. embarcadero remained closed as detectives interviewed at least 20 witnesses on the scene. an hour after the shooting and a mile away on the embarcadero officers detained a possible person of interest. police in fremont have released surveillance video in

5:39 am
no, thank you. no, no, no. the government is not interested in his testimony nor do he have any testimony. in fact, as i lead this case, i haven't got the slightest idea why he is in the same case with mr. "shrimp boy." >> the charge he did plead guilty to could bring a 20 years sentence but he will probably get less time because of no previous record. sentencing is set for october. we are midway through the year making it a great time it revisit personal spending budgets and retirement contributions. jill wagner of cbsmoneywatch.com reports. >> reporter: as we celebrate independence day, here's an idea. before you shut down for the summer, use the six month mark in the year to refresh some of those new year's financial resolutions that have been gathering dust. have you been able to keep your spending in line with your income? do you need to refresh the budget to account for anything new? maybe you have gotten a raise and need to increase your
5:40 am
retirement contributions. there's no need to wait until open enrollment because most plans allow you to pump more money into the account at any time. end of the quarter is also ideal for rebalancing your investment accounts. so that your allocation remains at your desired levels. and don't forget to free up cash for any big expenses within the next 12 months like a tuition bill or a home down payment. you don't want to risk having to sell an asset if it happens to be down at the wrong moment. and, of course, it's time for my semi-annual plea to draft a will, a durable power of attorney, and a healthcare proxy. if your documents are more than three years old you should review and update them because this is so important, please hire an estate attorney rather than using software or doing it online. with these simple steps, you may soon be celebrating your financial independence day. i'm jill schlesinger. it is 5:40. up next a missing woman survives two days trapped inside that white car.
